Project Description

The project involves a new bypass road and bridge to the north of the existing border crossing at Mae Sot (Thailand)-Myawaddy (Myanmar), which is in the congested area of the two border cities. This new crossing will be dedicated to cross-border freight traffic. The bypass will link with a newly envisioned special trade zone in Myanmar. The overall project will include about 16.9 km of a new four-lane divided highway (13.3 km in Thailand; 3.6 km in Myanmar), a 100 m-long bridge across the Moei River at the border, and associated border-crossing facilities.

Progress (as of March 2021)
